    Bob the Builder

    Script:

    Script:
    "Bob the Builder. Can We Fix It? Bob the Builder. Yes we can!”

    Director's Notes:
    This is a simulated audition for an animated cartoon.
    This script is the theme song for the animated series Bob the Builder. We want a voice actor to read the words of the theme song, in a rhythmic pattern that is analogous to the melody. Think rap. In other words, you are not singing, rather rapping this to the same beat. Our goal is to overlap your speaking words with the theme song. Please read it two times, each time using a different character voice. Stay in the realm of voices appropriate for 3-8 year olds. Also, please slate your name in your natural voice.

    First time submission to this forum. This was a recent EdgeStudio script contest which I missed, but wanted to see what people thought of my performance. I'm also curious to see how people feel about the quality of the recording. Thank you in advance for any input.

    Peer Feedback:

    I tried about 12 takes of this read and couldn't make something I was satisfied with. It's hard! I think your first read said "you" instead of we, and I think your setup (like mine) could benefit from some sound deadening. Little bit of echo. The second read shows you have a solid voice. I'd like to hear more low end on that second one. Maybe nudge closer to the mic, or failing that use a better mic.

    Still, better than anything I would have submitted for this script.

    Peer Feedback:

    Thanks so much! Big "d'oh!" on the script read. I didn't catch that misstep. Thanks.
    Thanks especially on the sound quality. Great feedback. I can hear what you mean. I've been thinking about getting a new microphone for a while now. The one I have is 10 years old and has always made my voice sound hollow - for lack of a better word. I'm attending one of the Phase 2 Home Studio classes on Tuesday. Hopefully, it will shed some light on how I can start "deadening" my recording space - which serves double duty as my office and my 5-year old son's playroom.
    Thanks again for your feedback! I appreciate it very much.

    Peer Feedback:

    Cool. I'm getting good results form my Blue Yeti if you're thinking about mics.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi i8paste -

    First, thanks for your great comments on my recordings, very useful input.

    Other than the misstep on the script in the first read, I think these were some good characters. I love the accent on the first read... reminded me a bit of the House Elf Dobby from the Harry Potter films - nice. On the second character, my only comment would be that the very last line kind of stepped away from the big, lumbering kids' character that comes across in the first part of the read, and sounded more like a sinister trailer voice for an upcoming horror flick.

    Hope these comments were helpful - Onward and Upward!

    Peer Feedback:

    You can defiantly voice the coming attractions at the movies! That second read was fun- I'd love you to voice a Bob the Builder trailer in your "movie guy" voice! Very creative.

    Peer Feedback:

    You might want to explain what you were aiming for here. On the surface...this is very confusing and as such, nearly impossible to render a comment.

    Peer Feedback:

    Who did you visualize you were talking to for this read? It sounded like you were trying out a cartoon/ character voice for this, but you are actually narrating about Fluffy and not being Fluffy. It was quite hard to understand what you were saying at times and there wasn't really any variety in the performance. I agree that maybe an explanation of what you were trying to achieve would be useful and then others could provide meaningful constructive criticism on how to accomplish your intention.

    No idea what you were doing, but i loved it! Honestly I'd listen to a lot more of this. XD

    Lion King Remember

    Script:

    Rafiki: STOP!

    {Rafiki motions to Simba near some reeds.}

    Shhh.

    {He parts the reeds and points past them with his staff.}

    Look down there.

    {Simba quietly and carefully works his way out. He looks over the edge and sees his reflection in a pool of water He first seems a bit startled, perhaps at his own mature appearance, but then realizes what he's looking at.}

    Simba: {Disappointed} That's not my father. That's just my reflection.

    Rafiki: Noo. Look ... harder.

    {Rafiki motions over the pool. Ripples form, distorting Simba’s reflection; they resolve into Mufasa’s face. There is a deep rumbling noise.}

    You see ... he lives in you.

    {Simba is awestruck. The wind picks up. In the air the huge image of Mufasa is forming from the clouds . He appears to be walking from the stars. The image is ghostly at first, but steadily gains color and coherence.}

    Mufasa: {Quietly at first} Simba . . .

    Simba: Father?

    Mufasa: Simba, you have forgotten me.

    Simba: No. How could I?

    Mufasa: You have forgotten who you are, and so have forgotten me. Look inside yourself,

    Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the Circle of Life.

    Simba: How can I go back? I'm not who I used to be.

    {Shot of cloud-Mufasa, with glowing yellow eyes. He is framed in swirling clouds, radiating golden light.}

    Mufasa: Remember who you are. You are my son, and the one true king.

    {Close up of Simba’s face, bathed in the golden light, showing a mixture of awe, fear, and sadness. The image of Mufasa starts to fade.}

    Remember who you are.

    {Mufasa is disappearing into the clouds fast. Simba runs into the fields trying to keep up with the image.}

    Simba: No! Please! Don't leave me.

    Mufasa: Remember...

    Simba: Father!

    I thought I would have fun with this one. This is a scene from the Lion King Movie where Rafiki escorts Simba to see Mufasa's Spirit, convincing Simba that Mufasa lives within him. Moreover, Simba must retake place in the circle of life or else Scar will defeat the purpose. One of my favorite Disney animated films and has wonderful voice actors as well.

    This is my first time doing any recording for voice-over work. I have a passion for doing voices but I don't know If I have the talent. After listening to some of the work people have done, I understand my audio quality could be better. However, I need to know where I stand before I go any further. Thanks for everything!

    Peer Feedback:

    Very very good, Don...excellent dramatic reading. I especially like the authenticity of accent, the music background and the reverb on "Father"'s voice, also like the intentionally slow pacing.. Did you also do the "Simba" character? If so, an extra tip of the cap and a nod. I would concentrate more on the actual vocal quality (enunciation/diction) than the "effects" (techies will take care of those). A bit of a mic click at the end, but could easily be edited.

    Peer Feedback:

    Thanks again sentry! Yes I did both Mufasa and Simba. Thanks for advice, will take heed.

    This is another Mufasa and simba voice.

    /sites/default/files/script-recordings/user-125198/script-recording-94968.mp3

    Peer Feedback:

    Suggest enunciate Mufasa in each word. Mufasa's voice is commanding, as the character should be. Simba's voice sounds young and eager, which is good. Perhaps project the voices so that they are louder than the background music. Right now the music is the spotlight, yet the characters should be front and foremost. Very nice (deep and elder, commanding respect as the character does) Mufasa voice and convincing Simba (youthful)!

    Peer Feedback:

    Thank you for the input. I made the music a little louder because I'm using earphone mic and so the quality will be very bad. Ill invest in some better mic and will give another go.
    another thing, just to be clear, are you saying I need to enunciate mufasa's words better? what about simba's?

    Peer Feedback:

    Nice tone to the voice. Very rich bass-baritone. And the contrasting Simba is nice and youngish.

    The recording quality leaves something to be desired. The music bed is overpowering the VO and the VO is compromised by excessive room echo which a music bed will not cover up. So they sound like two distinct recordings in a bad marriage - they do not blend well together.

    Beauty and The Beast Prologue

    Script:

    Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired,the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and
    offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away, but she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And
    when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart, and as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast, and placed a powerful spell on the castle, and on all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror
    as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his twenty-first year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair,and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?

    I am writing this to let you know how I feel about you. We've been through so much together and yet our love for each other has always been most important.

I can't and don't want to imagine life without you, I need you. These past few years of you being away for college have been very hard for me, but I am very thankful for the day will arrive that I finally get to see you again. We were born for each other we were destined to be. No matter the time or place, I will always find you , and I will always love you.

    Ratatouille

    Script:

    Anton Ego: In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the *new*. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new: an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau's famous motto, "Anyone can cook." But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist; but a great artist *can* come from *anywhere*. It is difficult to imagine more humble origins than those of the genius now cooking at Gusteau's, who is, in this critic's opinion, nothing less than the finest chef in France. I will be returning to Gusteau's soon, hungry for more.

Do you have a sound booth? What do you use to eliminate room reverberations? I'm having an issue with reflected noise. If you would, contact me at Michael@michaelsvoices.com.
    Thanks!
    Mike W.

    Peer Feedback:

    For sure, Mike! I'm composing the email now. :)

    Beauty and The Beast Prologue
    Script:

    Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired,the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and
    offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away, but she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And
    when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart, and as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast, and placed a powerful spell on the castle, and on all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror
    as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his twenty-first year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair,and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?

    The Bionicle

    Script:

    Gathered friends.
    Listen again to our legend,
    of the BIONICLE.

    In the time, before time.
    The great Spirit descended from the heavens,
    carrying we the ones called the Matorah
    to this paradise.

    We were separate and without purpose.
    So the Great Spirit illuminated us with the
    three virtues, Unity, Duty, and Destiny.

    We embraced these gifts,
    and in gratitude we named our Island home,
    Matanoui, after the great spirit himself.

    But our happiness was not to last,
    for Matanoui's brother,
    The Makutah, was jealous of these honors
    and betrayed him, casting a spell over
    Matanoui, who fell into a deep slumber.

    The Makutah was free to unleash his
    shadows.

    And unleash them he did!
